How do I text message someone? When I select on messages, I see selections for sending a MMS and sending a PIN and e-mail, but no SMS. People have sent them to me but I dont receive them. Any help?

You cannot create a SMS on Nextel. You can reply to one, but create.

. . . one way to get around this is to send the message as an email in the following format: mobilenumber@carrier-sms-gateway.... the receipient can then use your email address to reply or send you a message.

Check this out for addressing formats for various carriers....

Hey ZeroG46, would your nick be a reference to a trail at Vernon Valley? I haven't skied there in more than a decade but I'll never forget tumbling all the way down that one after taking an ill-advised dare!

The plan cost is the same but, technically, you are sending an MMS from your BB.

Maybe you can try to reload OS to make you SMS app. back
or sending MMS instead of SMS aren't they the same?
